As a makeup starter like me it is very important to have some basic products to begin with especially the eye shadow palette. I’am always looking for very affordable make-up palette to play with (to practice more on applying my eye shadow). If you have a money to buy/splurge into a high end make-up palette *then its good for you but for me I would personally advice to invest in a decent amount of good quality drugstore make-up to start with you make-up journey. I am not ready to waste high end/expensive palette to use as my trial and error product but who knows one day I could afford to waste one —- ehem! to use one I mean 😉
Anyway! I have used this Maybelline “The Blushed Nudes” for over a months now and I have loved each and every eye-look that I made with this palette. I know its just a practice make-up look for you but for me, I’am so much proud of whatever eye look I created with this palette! This palette teach me to creates the perfect subtle look exactly the way I like it to be to smokey eyes up to the simplest everyday eye look that I wanted. I must say it is the best starter make-up palette for a beginner like me because the color is not too heavy to play with plus it has a tutorial at the back on how to create a different eye look with this palette.
If you’re thinking of picking up this palette, have a look at my swatches below.
In terms of texture,The last shades in the bottom row have the best texture and pigmentation while the other esp the upper row need to be layered quite a bit for the color to be more visible.But nonetheless, the price point is quite affordable for a 12-eye shadow palette. If these cool toned shades catch your heart then you could pick this up in any local store you have in your place and you can check it online. I will definitely recommend it for everyone who like to start their make-up journey.
Here is one of the look I wore using the blushed nudes palette.
